Dunns River Falls is listed as the best in the world according to tour people in Jamaica. It isn't. It is very nice and everyone in our group that went were happy to have experienced the falls, but now that we have, there is no need to return. It is beautiful, don't get me wrong, just not as spectacular as we were lead to believe.

Catamaran from Sandals in Ocho Rios was fun and enjoyed snorkeling. Went to Dunn River Falls, you could climb it or hang at the beach. It's a 45 minute climb, bring water shoes or rent them for $5

We toured Dunn River Falls through a catamaran cruise that was part of our package at Beaches. The catamaran was beautiful, staff was gracious, and the falls were amazing. We took the stairs due to my husband's mobility problems, but could watch the rest of the family climb the falls. Definitely is a challenge, I was glad that we were watching. The guides seem to be qualified, but one slip and I could see a disaster waiting to happen! Be prepared, as the guides are looking for tips...we were told not to take any cash to the falls, so this was confusing when they all expected to be tipped!

This was a fun little excursion, made less so by the obnoxious, tip-seeking guides. The falls are pretty and scenic. The climb looks much harder than it is and takes a lot longer than it should because of the amount of people there. But overall it's a lot of fun and worth doing. We were on an excursion from a cruise ship and this was combined with another venue. You WILL definitely get wet!!! There's just too much rushing water not to plus the guides are always splashing you and unless you are super sure-footed you're going to slip on the rocks.
